We’ve just had word that Cardo Systems is giving us an upgraded line of Bluetooth communicators – and the word on the street is that these puppies can now be updated completely wirelessly.

Cardo Systems’ pedigree in wireless com devices stretches as far back as the first decade of Y2K when they started selling the world’s first wireless Bluetooth earpieces for early cellphones under the brand name “Scala”.

The viral success of these little Bluetooth units launched the company into their present brand name and current successes – the most recent press release of which flaunts two new entry-level offerings. 

“The new line introduces…the Cardo Spirit ($99) and Spirit HD ($149) – which replace Cardo’s current entry-level model, the Freecome 1+,” states the release.

“In addition, the new Bluetooth line sets a new standard for Bluetooth communicators with its “Live Bluetooth Intercom” experience, as the new Freecom 2x ($209) and Freecom 4x ($269) will automatically reconnect riders if accidently out of range. The new models will replace the Cardo Freecom2+ and Freecom 4+.”

      Hello Michael!

      Correct – with the exception that all units can now be updated wirelessly, thanks to a new ‘over-the-air’ software feature they’ve installed 🙂

    Hopefully these new units will have their audio cutting and dropping issues solved, but I doubt that!
